  1. Top of the scene - Evy at apple booth.
    Beautiful. Just beautiful. Don't get up. Stay just that way. Let me find the angle. [Almost even with her, still SL.] Ah yes, Evy, deep in thought, with red curls and apples. Don't move. Beautiful.
  2. EVELYN: I'm not in the mood, Adam.
    Don't move! Now, let me get set. Stay still. [Take the picture.] There! [Sit on the edge of the table, take an apple, and go to bite it.]
  3. EVELYN: Don't you dare.
    What?
  4. EVELYN: Take a bite out of that apple and I'll break that camera over your head.
    Aw, now, Evelyn. [Put the apple back.] Evy? What's wrong? [Move around to SR side of Evy.] It's a beautiful day. The sun is shinin', the Fair is underway. People are all duded up in their Sunday best. Birds are chirpin' and flowers are bloomin'. What more could we ask for?
  5. EVELYN: Another life.
    Well now. [While moving back to SL side.] I don't know what I would approve of such a thing. If you had another life, Evy, I might not be in it. And I really could not abide by that. [Playing with one of her curls.] It's the red curls.
  6. EVELYN: They'll be black in your photographs.
    Like this little spiral here, tickling the paleness of your cheek.
  7. EVELYN: The poetry competition doesn't begin until tomorrow, Adam.
    [Up next to her.] It began for me the moment I first saw you, and since that moment I have yet to be bested in eloquence.
  8. EVELYN: You're crazy, Adam Talbot, but thank you.
    Now what's troubling you? Why so melancholy?
  9. EVELYN: I'm not melancholy. I'm a failure. [She takes an apple and bites it.]
    Hey now! I can't eat an apple, but you can?
  10. EVELYN: These haven't a chance of winning.
    Ah ha, so these are your Fair entries. I should have known. You mustn't eat them!
  11. EVELYN: I may as well eat them. They haven't a chance.
    Well, they are a tad on the small side. Sorry.
  12. EVELYN: Father ate the one that might have won.
    He did? That's odd.
  13. EVELYN: Oh, he didn't mean to. He's just so scatterbrained when he's at work. It drives me to distraction. (She takes another bite.)
    Stop! Don't move! Let me set up. [Go back to SR side.] Beautiful. Pretty as a picture. Evelyn eating an apple.
  14. EVELYN: Adam Talbot, you're hopeless.
    [Sit on edge of table.] You should enter these. They look to be perfect apples.
  15. EVELYN: In shape, perhaps, but not in size. I'll never beat Ella Fisk with these. [She offers me an apple.]
    Oh, no. I'm not biting. But Ella Fisk is hard to beat at anything.
  16. TALBOT: Oh, no. I'm not biting. But Ella Fisk is hard to beat at anything.

    EVELYN: Adam!
    [Sit down next to her] I only meant that...
  17. EVELYN: I don't want to talk about her.
    Nor do I, really. Or her brother.
  18. EVELYN: See? You know just how it feels.
    How what feels?
  19. TALBOT: How what feels?

    EVELYN: To be bested.
    I'll not be bested by Harold Fisk!
  20. TALBOT: I'll not be bested by Harold Fisk!

    EVELYN: Of course not.
    [Pause.] But he's built his own studio.
  21. TALBOT: But he's built his own studio.

    EVELYN: I know.
    [Walk behind her to get back to SL side.] A real photography studio.
  22. EVELYN: You have a gallery.
    But not a studio, something suitable and well lit for making portraits.
  23. EVELYN: You will have it one day as well, Adam. I know you will! You must promote yourself.
    [Up next to her SL shoulder.] Hey, maybe Miss Henrietta will lay a big 'ol egg for you.
  24. EVELYN: Too late, even if she did. The egg category is already closed, and that old hen is shutting down anyways.
    Is there some other category you might enter?
  25. EVELYN: I thought about sewing, but Mother is trying ot dethrone Kathryn Fisk in that category. She and Mrs. Swan are both making knit-lace collars.
    Oh, that reminds me. Your father sent Buster to ask me to meet him and Joe Swan Friday with my camera, down to the newspaper. Said he had a job for me.
  26. EVELYN: A job?
    Yeah, a job.
  27. TALBOT: Yeah, a job.

    EVELYN: A portrait?
    [Follow her down.] I dno't know. Think he needs a photo to put in the paper?
  28. TALBOT: I don't know. Think he needs a photo to put in the paper?

    EVELYN: Well, I wouldn't know, I...
    Think of it, Evelyn! If I could have a photograph published in the newspaper with my name on it, why I...
  29. EVELYN: Don't pin your hopes on that.
    Why not?
  30. EVELYN: Photographs are still too costly for father to print.
    But whatever other sort of job would he ask of me?
  31. TALBOT: But whatever other sort of job would he ask of me?

    EVELYN: Heaven only knows.
    He said Joe Swan would be there.
  32. EVELYN: Then perhaps he wants a portrait of a potato farmer.
    But why?
  33. EVELYN: Don't ask questions, just do it. If he pays you, that is.
    Oh, I couldn't accept money from your father.
  34. EVELYN: But you need the money.
    No, I need to show him what I can do. [Set up to shoot a photo of the apples.]
  35. EVELYN: You need a new suit.
    I know.
  36. EVELYN: And he doesn't like you, anyway.
    Well, there's a fine howdy-do.
  37. EVELYN: Don't take it personally. He doesn't like anyone.
    He will like me. Eventually.
  38. EVELYN: He thinks you're a dreamer.
    Dreamer?
  39. EVELYN: With that camera.
    I am a dreamer with this camera.
  40. EVELYN: He thinks you have no future.
    You're my future. And I will buy you a house.
  41. EVELYN: He thinks you should get a real job.
    And what do you think?
  42. TALBOT: And what do you think?

    EVELYN: Well, honestly, I...
    Yes?
  43. TALBOT: Yes?

    EVELYN: Honestly, I'm a little concerned as well.
    [Going to her.] Aw, now, Evy. I'm building a business. You know that.
  44. TALBOT: [Going to her.] Aw, now, Evy. I'm building a business. You know that.

    EVELYN: I do.
    It takes time.
  45. TALBOT: It takes time.

    EVELYN: I know.
    I just need to get my name out there.
  46. EVELYN: Harold Fisk has h is name out there.
    I know. He advertises constantly, thanks to his father's money.
  47. TALBOT: I know. He advertises constantly, thanks to his father's money.

    EVELYN: He's lucky.
    And then that big one announcing his studio last week.
  48. TALBOT: And then that big one announcing his studio last week.

    EVELYN: Yes, but his name was misspelled.
    [Laughing.] That did help some. Think your father did it on purpose?
  49. TALBOT: [Laughing.] That did help some. Think your father did it on purpose?

    EVELYN: Oh, no. He's too honest for that.
    Maybe it was an honest mistake.
  50. EVELYN: Just remember: "Talbot takes a back seat to no one." That was good, but tiny.
    [Move SR.] You'd think your father could give me just a wee break on the cost and...
  51. EVELYN: He thinks you're too old for me, too.
    [SL take her hands.] What? Am I too old for you?
  52. EVELYN: You're a child at heart. Let's forget about the Fisks.
    Then to the swings! Come with me to the swings!
  53. TALBOT: Then to the swings! Come with me to the swings!

    EVELYN: Oh, Adam.
    Come on, curly-top. To the swings!
  54. TALBOT: Come on, curly-top. To the swings!

    EVELYN: But the booth, I...
    Damn the booth!
  55. TALBOT: Damn the booth!

    EVELYN: Adam!
    The booth isn't going anywhere.
  56. TALBOT: The booth isn't going anywhere.

    EVELYN: And my apples...
    TALBOT: Damn the apples!
  57. TALBOT: Damn the apples!

    EVELYN: Adam, stop. Someone will hear you.
    I don't care. Let me be heard.
  58. TALBOT: I don't care. Let me be heard.

    EVELYN: Stop. You're embarrassing me.
    [Start dancing with her.] Evy, Evy. Give me your answer do!
  59. TALBOT: Evy, Evy. Give me your answer do!

    EVELYN: Adam...
    I'm half crazy, all for the love of you!
  60. TALBOT: I'm half crazy, all for the love of you!

    EVELYN: Adam!
    It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage...
  61. TALBOT: It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage...

    EVELYN: Someone will see us...
    But you'll look so sweet upon the seat...
  62. TALBOT: But you'll look so sweet upon the seat...

    EVELYN: You're crazy.
    ... of a bicycle built for two! [Dance off.]
